BRUNSWICK, Maine – The Connecticut College men's track & field team finished seventh among nine schools at the Bowdoin Invitational on Saturday afternoon.
Senior Jonathan Handy (Hingham, Mass.) got things started for the Camels on a high note by registering a personal-best toss of 40-feet, 11.50-inches in the weight throw. Freshman Matt Sambor (Longmeadow, Mass.) was also impressive in the field by placing third in the triple jump with a leap of 40-10.25.
On the track, the team was led by Josh Simensky (Falmouth, Mass.). The junior factored into a pair of third-place finishes by completing the mile in 4:34.90 and anchoring the 4x800-meter relay team which hit the tape in 8:42.21. The group also included senior Russell Adam (Cheshire, Conn.), sophomore Ethan Milsark (Northampton, Mass.), and freshman Stuart Pollock (Westfield, N.J.).
Other notable efforts were made by sophomores Ian McAleer (Newfields, N.H.) and Ian Anderson (Chicago, Ill.) in the 60-meter dash. McAleer punched in a time of 7.34 seconds in the prelims, matching his school record, while Anderson had a breakout effort by crossing the line in 7.54.
